Nine and Paralympics Australia have today announced that Nine Entertainment Co. (Nine) has secured the exclusive free and subscription audio-visual and audio rights to the Paris 2024 Paralympic Games.
The historic deal with Paralympics Australia places Nine at the forefront of Australian Paralympic sport coverage as Australia’s official Paralympic Network, after recently being awarded exclusive audio-visual rights, and non-exclusive audio rights to the Summer and Winter Olympic Games from 2024-2032 by the IOC.
The Paris 2024 Paralympic Games rights also complement Nine’s recently renewed partnerships with the NRL, Rugby Australia, and Tennis Australia, at a time when live sport continues to demonstrate its ability to drive strong growth in streaming audiences and strength in free-to-air TV consumption.
Nine CEO, Mike Sneesby, said: “It is a privilege to be able to bring the Paralympic Games of Paris 2024 to Australia. We look forward to building our relationship with Paralympics Australia and ensuring the Paris 2024 Paralympic Games are accessible across more platforms than ever before.”
